HP's Omen 15 gaming laptop is back with an all-new minimalist look. This iteration also introduces AMD Ryzen processors to the lineup. The $1,299 model 15-en0029nr that I'm reviewing is, as I noted, on the pricey side if you're purely after graphics-driven performance.

Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The HP Omen 15 has a new AMD processor that bolsters its work credentials. Its Full HD IPS display has 144Hz Nvidia G-Sync, which is a good specification for a mid-range gaming machine. The keyboard doesn't have a number pad, and the power button is awkwardly placed between the F12 and Delete buttons. The Dell G5 Gaming 5500 weighs 2.34kg and is 25mm thick, while the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 weighs just 1.6kg and has an 18mm body.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The HP Omen 15 is one huge beast of a gaming laptop to say the least. It is very heavy to carry around on a regular basis and incredibly difficult to haul around if you are a regular traveler or commuter. But it packs a solid punch when it comes to gaming performance. The display is very large, coming in at 15.6 inches with a 144Hz refresh rate, and is gorgeous, ideal for those wanting to play more cinematic or AAA games. The battery life is not the greatest and is easily one of the biggest complaints we found whilst we were testing it.
